It just gives you a fuzz like distortion.Its good for stoner rock and metal and I believe Jimi hendriz used the big ,muff fuzz pedal.

The best example I can think of for fuzz pedal is Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones and most Jimi Hendrix songs use fuzz.

nope, he had a fuzzface i think. EHX market the big muff as hendrix's pedal, but he died before the first one was out.

as for what fuzz actually is, listen to some muse, they use it a lot for both bass and guitar
it's like putting your gain on 45

Youll loose some low end response, so mix it with a clean signal, by eithier running it a loop or a stereo rig, or by bi-amping and then only effect your highs.

It works alright, but the Big Bass Muff is a lot better, and I'm pretty sure its the same price most places too. The Bass Boost on that pedal can make a lot of the difference.
